14 Democrats voted with Republicans against Pelosi's $3 trillion progressive dream list stimulus bill.
1 Republican voted for it: Peter King of NY.
"Congressman Peter King tells Cheddar exclusively that he plans to vote in favor of the $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill introduced by Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi earlier this week because it's the only way to get funding for local jurisdictions.
While admitting that the Pelosi-led "Phase 4" package is far from perfect, the Long Island Republican told Cheddar on Thursday that the bill's priority of shoring up state and local government support is his top consideration.
In a series of text messages, Rep. King said "[There's] a lot in there I disagree with but it's essential to get State and Local funding on the table and this is the only vehicle to do it."
The longtime GOP House representative has previously criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for suggesting that states go bankrupt rather than receive additional federal funding to help with the COVID-19 response. The Kentucky Republican told The Hugh Hewitt Show at the end of April, "I would certainly be in favor of allowing states to use the bankruptcy route. It saves some cities. And there's no good reason for it not to be available."
King responded over Twitter at the time, writing, "McConnell's dismissive remark… is shameful and indefensible." King continued his criticism Thursday to Cheddar while announcing his intention to vote in favor of the Pelosi-propelled relief bill by saying, "This is McConnell's fault. By refusing to bring up state and local aid, he gave Pelosi the upper hand."
The New York congressman added that he was unsure how many other Republicans in his caucus might also vote in favor of the bill Friday. He said in a follow-up text about the 1,800-page Pelosi bill, "Most of the extraneous items can be stricken in the Senate."
King has been involved with several efforts along with Democrats in the New York delegation to provide coronavirus relief; his office is working closely with New York City Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney, Chairwoman of the House Oversight Committee, on a number of bipartisan solutions including $25 billion to provide aid to the beleaguered United States Postal Service.
In a separate call with reporters Thursday, King, Maloney, and a third New Yorker, Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler, introduced new legislation aimed at helping COVID-19 first responders in the years after the pandemic, modeling the effort after their bipartisan 2019 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund bill. When asked how he hopes to convince hesitant GOP-colleagues to back high-spending proposals, King responded, "No matter what the cost is, we need to pay it."

"This Is Not A Costless Exercise" - The Unintended Consequences Of Monetary Inflation
“In short, the Fed is committed to rescue businesses from the greatest economic catastrophe since the great depression and probably even greater than that, to fund the US Government’s rocketing budget deficits, fund the maintenance of domestic consumption directly or indirectly through the US Treasury, while pumping up financial markets to achieve these objectives and preserve the illusion of national wealth.
Clearly, we stand on the threshold of an unprecedented monetary expansion.”
"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Trump announces executive order 'suspending' regulations impeding the economy
President hands his Cabinet secretaries broad say to nix more regulations
Donald Trump, eager to juice the staggering US economy to boost his re-election bid, signed an executive order on Tuesday he said is designed to help businesses recover from the Covid-19 outbreak.
The president told his Cabinet members during a White House meeting the order "gives you tremendous power to cut regulation."
The order is about "instructing federal agencies to use any and all authority to waive, suspend and eliminate unnecessary regulations that impede economic recovery," Mr Trump said before signing it with a large black felt pen.
Is this a trustworthy site?
I saw that signing on the news during my lunch break
its long overdue
one thing that would go a very long way, in addition to cutting all these regs is to reduce the rule making authority of these agencies which have the effects of being laws
but this is a great start - will be interested in figuring out how to keep track of which regs have been actually eliminated
That’s wonderful! Even better would be to scrap *all* unnecessary regulations and setup a system that requires showing an actual need for any further regulation and balancing any such need against the costs, economic and otherwise, of any proposed regulation.
We need a system of government that precludes us being buried under the onslaught of useless fecal material that results when politicians feel like “We have to do something!”. If we really want to be successful, what the politicians and bureaucrats need to do is, “Get the FIRETRUCK out of the way!” and let American citizens figure it out. This applies to the economy, the response to the Wu Flu, etc. Just get out of the way.
For years I've suggested a far more simple solution for the bloodlust to pass both more regulations and laws. Want to pass a new reg or law? Then 10 current regs/laws will need to be identified and eliminated with each new reg/law. For each new worthless reg/law we rid ourselves of 10 worthless regs/laws. Eventually, we'll get where we need to be.

"Supreme Court blocks House Dems' efforts to get Mueller grand jury info released"
I like it. Excellent idea.
If I recall, when President Trump took office he issued a directive on a 3:1 for new laws doing that exact thing. For each new law, 3 had to be rescinded or eliminated.
